The Thalians - "Hollywood for Mental Heath" for over a half century; currently devoted to our brave soldiers who have become wounded warriors.
We are working to help them with their wounds from war.
The New Thalians
I am thrilled to be a New Thalian. My husband Bob Lorsch, has been a supporter for many years, and I was happy join in on the fun of honoring Hugh H. Hefner as “Mr. Wonderful” benefiting UCLA’s Operation Mend. When we agreed to chair to the event, it was based on an understanding with Ruta that we would all have the goal to attract new interest and enthusiasm, to insure that The Thalians tradition of charity will continue for years to come.
With the Thalian’s mission of “Giving Where It Is Needed Most” proceeds are now going to mental health programs for the returning soldiers of Operation Mend. We are so proud to be able to recognize their tremendous work, including the establishment of Save a Life, to prevent suicide and improve soldiers’ overall psychological health.
As a result of the financial success of the last event, Bob and I will again be chairing the 56th Thalians Gala in April 2014 at an exciting new venue, honoring a soon to be announced Entertainment Legend. I truly believe the Thalians are headed in a positive new direction with their best work yet to come.
Kira Lorsch, Thalian since 2009
